MB (Megabyte)


Definition: A MB (megabyte) is about 1,000 KB (kilobytes), 0.001 GB (gigabytes), or about 1 million bytes.

A megabyte is a method of measuring the size of computer files, including digital photo files, as well as the storage capacity of a memory card. Photos with more detail and image quality are larger files, requiring more computer storage space. Most digital photos require more than 1 MB of storage space.

A megabyte is different from a megapixel (MP).
